On June 3, 2007, The Trinity Society was created to recognize and give thanks for those who have remembered the Cathedral in their wills and other estate plans, enabling the members to witness to the value of the Cathedral in their lives and to secure its ministries for generations to come.

Membership in the Trinity Society is open to everyone - neither the size nor the type of gift matters, only that you have shown your desire to support the mission of the Cathedral by including it in your estate plans. Donors will be part of the Trinity Society as soon as they make their estate plans known to the Dean or to the Development Committee chair, and will be recognized annually on Trinity Sunday. If a donor prefers, gifts may also remain anonymous.

There are a variety of means of making gifts from estates, in France or in the U.S. For instance:

• Do you have property that you might leave to the Cathedral that could become staff housing or free up current on-site housing for other creative uses?

• Did you know that there are a variety of ways that you can make a planned gift to the Cathedral in ways that would benefit you now, and later you estate, your family, and your church?

For more information about the Trinity Society, and about the various means of making planned gifts in France or in the U.S. please contact Jennifer Cortright Gosmand, chair of the Development Committee at development@americancathedral.org

She will be pleased to send you the Trinity Society brochure or speak to you personally about planned giving.
